Cancellation of a Loan:
Funded option only – Your 19+ Advanced Learning Loan application will automatically be cancelled for (but not limited to), the following reasons:
Missing Evidence: 45 days from the applications received or submitted date – whichever is the latest.
Approved: You have been approved but not had an initial positive attendance confirmation – 90 days from course start date or approval date – whichever is the latest.
Approved Awaiting Signature: 45 days from the date the application was received or submitted date – whichever is the latest.
If you are attending a course and your loan is cancelled during the course for any reason, you will be personally liable to cover the outstanding monies to UK Sports Training. Any non-payment will lead to legal action.
Fee Liability: 19+ Advanced Learning Loan, Funded option only
Once you have enrolled on a course and attended for two weeks, you are fully responsible for the full loan amount. The Student Loans Company will make payments on a monthly basis to cover your course fee. However if you leave the course early, these payments will cease and there will be a balance of fees owing to UK Sports Training which you will be responsible for.
The outstanding balance will be calculated, and you will be invoiced after leaving the course. You have up until the original end date of the course to pay any remaining balance. Failure to pay will result in formal proceedings being taken. You will still have to pay the balance of your Advanced Learning Loan up until the day of leaving the course.
If you leave the course early, you are responsible for sending back all of your course materials to UK Sports Training. Failure to do so will result in an additional £100 being added to your outstanding fee balance. This £100 is to cover manuals and uniform.
If you have applied for a loan and it has been approved but you subsequently decide not to start the course, don’t worry, we will not receive any payments and you can inform the Students Loans Company that you no longer require the loan.
Omniport Finance Plans
Please refer to your formal documentation that has been provided to you by Omniport. If you are not accepted for a finance plan, you can opt for a Student Finance loan or the one-off payment option.

During this time, should you decide not to proceed with your course you will receive a full refund once you have returned all course material to UK Sports Training. Following the seven day period, no monies will be refunded. However if you attend a course date the cooling off period will cease.

Date to be advised
If you need to transfer your practical date(s) but are unsure when you will be able to attend, UK Sports Training will try to transfer you to “date to be advised” following receipt of the agreed transfer fee, however this is discretionary and not guaranteed. The following terms apply to ‘date to be advised’:
Self-funded option only: UK Sports Training will hold a student’s “date to be advised” period for up to 12 months from the date of booking.
Funded option only: UK Sports Training will hold a student’s “date to be advised” period (for completion) within the remainder of the academic year.
Students are advised to keep in regular contact with their tutor during the “date to be advised” period.
Students must contact UK Sports Training when they are ready to undertake their chosen practical dates.
Self-funded and one day courses only: Students must advise UK Sports Training if an extension period is required after the initial 12 months from the date of booking and may be subject to further charges.
If a student fails to advise UK Sports Training of their intended set practical dates, or the need for an extension, UK Sports Training will cancel the student’s course in writing. A fee of £50.00 will be charged for re-registration.
Non Attendance (fixed course dates, not one to one course)
If, for any reason, you do not attend the set practical dates without notifying UK Sports Training prior to the first day of the assessments, a charge of £150.00 will be incurred. This fee must be paid in full before scheduling new assessment dates.
Self-funded option only: If no fee is paid within 12 months of your original assessment dates, UK Sports Training will cancel the whole of your course. No fees are refundable.

Venues and Dates
From time to time, UK Sports Training may have to change the venue and/ or dates of your course. This usually happens when we have excessive or low numbers on a course, which could have health and safety implications to our students.
We therefore reserve the right to change the venue and/or dates of courses. Notification will be sent, in writing, to each student
Completion of your course
If for any reason, you do not complete your course in your agreed time frame and UK Sports Training has not had notification from you, we will write to you asking you to contact us to restart your training. After 12 months from the booking of your course, UK Sports Training reserves the right to cancel your course if there has been no correspondence from you. If you wish to reinstate your course, full course fees will apply.
